Your fave Edi clubs according to Facebook reviews

Hive did surprisingly well

If you didn’t know, life expectancy in the UK is 81.5 years. For some reason, people actually take time out of those 81.5 years to write reviews for club nights.

So we read them.

And then compiled a list of the best and worst.

Creme Soda – 5*/5

Despite it’s tiny size, the huge queue and the non-existent smoking area, Creme Soda is by far the winner of Facebook. With music you can actually dance to, and the cheapest drinks around, it’s the place to be on a Wednesday.


FLY Club – 4.7*/5

Thank you, Cab vol, for actually giving the people of Edinburgh somewhere to go on a Friday night.



Love Wednesdays – 4.5*/5

As Why Not’s new Wednesday night, LOVE allows for cheap drinks and a place for Edinburgh uni sports teams, and the people they get with, to merge with each other.

‘great birds haha’

gotta get those snacks in

Milk Tuesdays – 4.5*/5

Milk has been around for quite some time now as Opal’s biggest night. It’s definitely the place to go if you like R&B and actually feel like wearing something nice.

Flare – 4.3*/5

As every fresher’s best friend, Flare at Why Not on a Monday is always full to the brim with people from your course, halls and tutorials.

Alright, Andrew


Cabaret Voltaire – 4.1*/5

Cab vol’s Hectors House often gets a somewhat unfair reputation for being reserved for wannabe roadmen and Edinburgh uni wankers alike. However, that doesn’t stop students flocking back religiously every week.

Hive – 3.6*/5

As the crown jewel of Edinburgh,  Hive is completely underrated at 3.6 and the real winner in the hearts of many. Free entry five days a week and £1 drinks means you’ll inevitably end up there time and time again.

To be fair, this is hard to argue with but it’s like watching that vid about how McDonalds chicken nugs are made – we’re still going to eat them, and we’re still going to end up in Hive.

They also offer counselling for those of us who can’t hack life without it.

I don’t think Raqqa even has an airport, mate.

Broke – 3.5*/5

Cav on a Friday is definitely not for the faint-hearted of us (there’s just something about a club that has carpet down- weird). But, it is huge and has a light-up dance floor, so what more could you want?
